Name: Kylie Wentzel

b. 1993

Inspired by her surrounding environments – both natural and urban – Kylie Wentzel’s (b. 1993 - Durban, SA) work revisualises the people, creatures, objects, smells, sounds and scribbles in these spaces. Her naive and intentionally spontaneous style reveals her observations as though they were shaken together in a lucky packet. The marks, borders, text and graphics that make up her compositions have a sense of raw immediacy that document her visions – loosely concerned with the line between what exists and what is perceived. Wentzel lives and works in the salty subtropical city of Durban, situated on the east coast of South Africa, and has shown her work locally and internationally in multiple solo shows, group shows and art fairs.

Popcorn and cascade bidding:

If a bid is placed during the last 2 minutes of the auction, the closing time will be automatically extended for an additional 2 minutes from the time the last bid was placed. The item will close once all bidding activity has stopped. This is recommended for high-value and popular items. Popcorn bidding prevents bidders from waiting until the last minute to bid without giving the bidders who were outbid an opportunity to rebid.

Cascade bidding ensures auction lots close at staggering times, one after another. For example, the first lot of an auction might close at 12:01pm, the second lot would close at 12:02pm, then the third lot at 12:03pm, etc.
